Train with Us
Our mission is to provide innovative cultural arts experiences, educate artists of all ages, and provide employment opportunities to performing arts industry professionals.
OFVS is a non-profit 501(c)3 performance and arts education organization that produces productions from full scale to showcase, and provides educational performing arts programming. We help our members find their voices on the stage and gain confidence by giving them creative input in the production process, and provide our community with unique, affordable cultural and arts programming
If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a community to build a theatre company. We are so grateful for the support and experiences we have had in our almost 11 years serving the east end, and this fall we are excited to be expanding into new spaces! Help us lay a solid foundation for our students as we work to provide high quality training facilities and navigate safe arts programming in these unprecedented times.

OFVS has made such a positive impact on the community! Those involved gain a wealth of knowledge about the inner-workings of theater and many valuable life lessons - working on a team, meeting deadlines, managing a demanding schedule, facing fears and persevering. The students end the production with more confidence and a sense of accomplishment and pride and it is FABULOUS! What more could we want for our youth?
My daughter Mary has performed in 10 shows with OFVS. With each show her confidence & talent grows. Kasia & Anita are such strong role models for our youth. I highly recommend OFVS for both young and old. The Tap Show last spring had performers from 4 years old to 84!!!! You are never too young or to old!!
“Becoming a part of the OFVS family has been life-changing for our son. His self-confidence has sky-rocketed, and he has made so many new friends. He has been given the opportunity to explore his creative side and share his talents in a safe and nurturing environment. We love OFVS!”
Really. Ask us anything.
